debting
 n.— «Despite the hard lessons we’re now learning about the perils of credit, my guess is that when this crisis is over, be it in five years or around the time of the next ice age, we’ll go back to our debting ways. Why? For one thing, we have short memories in this country. For another, we’re tireless believers in the American way of life—and the plastic that makes it possible.» —“ Credit is a double-edged sword” by Meghan Daum Marketplace May 22, 2009.
